    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Safeway part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Benefits from the Union. Depending on your management, the work environment can be very forgiving and easy-going.

    Cons

    There is no opportunity to grow here. Ultimately Safeway views it's employees as replaceable cogs. Your reward for climbing the ranks will be less respect of your personal time, comfort, desires, and your family.

    Advice to Management

    Crack open your dusty business school books and read a few paragraphs, you've strayed so far from the basics that it is almost a parody.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Safeway part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Team work, fair and friendly managers. Managers work with us and work hard too! Excellent benefits: 401k on day one. superb health care for both part time employees after one year and all full time employees. Union pension after 5 consecutive years too. Pay is guaranteed under union contract so if you prove your prior experience applies to your new position you will be paid accordingly. This can be very significant. For those who thrive in challenging, labor- intensive, customer service environments, this is rewarding and time flies.

    Cons

    Deli Clerk is a very high labor job. You must be able to perform the required duties in your allotted time. On busy days this can be very challenging. This includes lifting, cooking, assembling, slicing, preparing, hours standing on feet, and lots of deep cleaning. It is not for the faint-hearted but for the right person very rewarding nonetheless.

    Advice to Management

    Always meet, greet, say goodbye to get to know your employees. Sometimes (only sometimes) management seems a little aloof. Smiles go a long way to make our team stronger, happier, and more efficient.
